ICYMI: Overcoming Racial Equity Fatigue
"Eighteen months after an unprecedented movement for racial justice, many organizations are feeling frustration and disappointment. What now?" writes Benjamin Abtan in the Stanford Social Innovation Review as 2021 comes to a close. Abtan continues, "In many of these cases, racial equity fatigue stems from the distance between the high hopes for change felt in 2020 and the current situation."
Throughout the piece, Abtan offers reflections and recommendations for the field in how to proceed acknowledging that "there is no quick fix, nor magical product with short-term, quantifiable results to convince a reluctant board or investor."
